150 Jewish Youths to Leave England for Israel Summer Studies

The troubled Middle East situation has not changed plans of 150 young people to participate in a Summer-in-Israel program organized by the Hecha-lutz Department of the Jewish Agency, officials said today.

The 150 young boys and girls, who are between 16 and 18 years of age, will leave next week for a four-week stay during which they will tour Israel and work in kibbutzim.
